According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a smoking employee costs his or her company 18 percent more than a non-smoker. These costs occur from absenteeism and presenteeism, lost productivity and direct medical expenses.
Smokers, on average, miss 6.16 days of work per year due to sickness (including smoking related acute and chronic conditions), compared to nonsmokers, who miss 3.86 days of work per year.
